          Priority: P2
            Bug ID: 53864
          Assignee: dev@tomcat.apache.org
           Summary: Tomcat creates context.xml as a folder not a file on
                    deployment of new war file
          Severity: normal
    Classification: Unclassified
                OS: Linux
          Reporter: ijabz@fastmail.fm
          Hardware: Other
            Status: NEW
           Version: 5.0.27
         Component: Catalina
           Product: Tomcat 5

I have a war file, lets call it widget.war created with Maven that contains a
context.xml file in META-INF, on copying it into webapps folder tomcat
auto-unpacks it but then instead of copying the context.xml into
Catalina/localhost and renaming it widget.xml it created a directory called
widget.xml

Then in log I get the error:

java.io.IOException: java.io.FileNotFoundException:
/home/jthink/jakarta-tomcat-5.0.27/conf/Catalina/localhost/widget.xml (Is a
directory)

If I then manually delete the widget.xml folder, shutdown, manually copy
context.xml into localhost and rename to widget.xml and restart , everthing is
working okay.

Why does it try to create widget.xml as a folder.
One thought I had it that the war is created by maven and the META-INF folder
also contains a maven folder could that confuse tomcat in some way.

I realize the version of tomcat Im using is quite old but I couldnt find a
duplicate bug in the database so thought it worth reporting.
